The curiosity landing already has a meme: NASA’s ‘mohawk guy.’
The dude with the awesome hair was Bobak Ferdowsi, in case you hadn’t heard already. Apparently for big missions, he gets a new hairdo - this one voted on by the rest of his team. “The hairdo, its empiric awesomeness aside, was also a visual symbol of the humanity at the core of NASA’s achievements… Ferdowsi’s mohawk served as a reminder of the individual people — the quirky people — who make all that progress possible,” writes Megan Garber for The Atlantic.
